Class QuickX

  • public class QuickX
    extends Object
    The QuickX class provides static methods for sorting an array using an optimized version of quicksort (using Hoare's 2-way partitioning algorithm, median-of-3 to choose the partitioning element, and cutoff to insertion sort).

    For additional documentation, see Section 2.3 of Algorithms, 4th Edition by Robert Sedgewick and Kevin Wayne.

        a - the array to be sorted
      • main

        public static void main​(String[] args)
        Reads in a sequence of strings from standard input; quicksorts them (using an optimized version of 2-way quicksort); and prints them to standard output in ascending order.
        args - the command-line arguments
